From the design of the equipment that processes food to the actual manufacturing of food to the packaging of the final product, and even to transportation concerns, the Food and Beverage industry needs for simulation is bigger than ever. Increasingly, food safety, nutritional value and shelf life are important selling points.

Mixing, cooking and storing food create interactions between food components that require their own complex modeling processes.

Packaging for food is a critical: containers must keep products intact and clean during shipment and retain valuable nutrients while on the shelf. At the same time, environmental impact concerns have become a priority, a factor that often directly competes with cost restraints.

Virtual prototyping can help ensure that all these requirements are given consideration. The ANSYS suite of simulation tools offers an unparalleled depth of technical solutions, providing a multiphysics approach to development in the food and beverage industry.
